Derek Hulse Hulse: “Our urban core has the advantage of proximity to an international airport. In most major urban markets, you’re not within a mile of a major airport; that’s one thing that’s a great thing about our Downtown.”

SAN DIEGO—Proximity to an international airport, in addition to being the place where Millennials are living, is bringing more office tenants to the Downtown San Diego market, Cushman & Wakefield executives tell GlobeSt.com. The firm’s team of Downtown office-market leasing specialists composed of Steve Center, Derek Hulse, Jim Laing and Philip Roberts leased nearly 300,000 square feet of office space in 2016, resulting in approximately 160,000 square feet of positive net absorption for the region’s central business district.
